The Suffolk County Police Department is actively hiring school crossing guards. This is an important part of the police department as these individuals are responsible to the safety of children, controlling traffic in school zones and escorting pedestrians across busy intersections in the mornings and afternoons.
Eligible candidates can apply through their local precinct. Unless requested, crossing guards are assigned to an intersection within the precinct they live in. The starting pay is $20 an hour for substitute guards and $18 an hour for permanent guards. Permanent positions offer part-time hours, while receiving the same medical, vision and dental benefits as full-time Suffolk County employees. All crossing guards will receive a one-day training and have a flexible schedule.
If you think you have what it takes, reach out to your local precinct for more information!
